I am a porter at a car dealership and I work more than 40 hours a week but my employer never pays me overtime. Is this legal?

The wage and hour laws have certain exemptions that apply to some car dealership employees. However, these usually apply to salesmen, partsmen, or mechanics. If your job duties do not fall under one of the exemptions in the Fair Labor Standards Act you may be owed overtime by your employer.

Many car dealerships incorrectly apply exemptions to every employee, without consideration of their job duties. If you are working more than 40 hours a week but you are not paid time-and-a-half you should contact our employment lawyers to do a free case review of your job responsibilities. We can determine whether you are being paid correctly with a quick review of what you do and how you are paid.
